I would love a 3 way deal w/ MEM & MIN, if we cannot get Carmelo.
Knicks get Luke Ridnour & Marc Gasol
TWolves get Anthony Randolph & OJ Mayo
MEM gets draft picks, Turiaf, Walker, Brewer
TWOLVES do this deal b/c they can add Randolph & Mayo to their young core (Love, Beasley, Johnson) to entice future PG Rubio to come aboard.
Flynn, Johnson & Randolph of bench.
MEM does it b/c they get Brewer (making 4.9 mil next year) & Walker. With the money tied up with gay, Conley & Thabeet for the next 4 years... They cannot afford both Randolph & Gasol. They'll lose one of these bigs.
They have Henry & Vasquez already. Brewer & Walker fit into the rotation, and Turiaf gives them even more toughness (plus will be an asset they can trade next Feb). Getting another 1st rounder helps as well.
MEM happy. NYK happy. MEM does what's necessary, even though they'll hate to lose both Mayo & Gasol.
